I am a coffee drinker. Like, been drinking coffee since I was a kid – don’t even think about judging me on that!
So I’ve been drinking coffee for over 30 years. I am an average Northeastern gal, I drink at least 16oz of coffee a day – my travel cups and mugs are not small LOL. Ground coffee, grinding my own beans… depends on what mood I’m in.
I say all of this to say, I have a new coffee experience and I am loving it! Guess who’s a fancy pants with a coffee subscription now. What?!
Hello, Trade Coffee Subscription
Trade Coffee is a specialty coffee subscription with coffee beans fresh roasted to order, and delivered right to your door!
What makes Trade Coffee so unique is that the beans are not roasted until you place an order. Read that again. The beans are not roasted until you place an order. This means your roasted beans literally cannot be any fresher.
When you visit the website, you can take a fun little coffee quiz to “get matched” and figure out what coffees may tickle your fancy. After all, we all have different flavor profile preferences – some like light, some like dark, while others like nutty or fruity flavors.
Or, if you want to go straight to shopping, you can select the coffee you want. To make it easier to sort through the hundreds of coffees available, you can filter the coffees by regions, taste preferences, roasting preferences, and your brewing method.
There is an entire how-to section on the website devoted to helping you make the perfect cup of coffee, no matter what brew style you prefer. Even the blog has yummy coffee-based recipes. Clearly the website is meant for coffee lovers, which is just how I like it.
Ordering coffee was a breeze.
Once I place my order for my bag of coffee, I received an email confirming my purchase. But they take customer service a step further. I received another notification when my coffee beans were being roasted. Next, Trade Coffee emails you to let you know when your coffee is shipping. The whole process is pretty engaging and fun.
But the real magic begins when you open the bag of coffee, it is sensory heaven.
When you receive your bag of coffee and open it – oh my goodness. The coffee smelled so light and fresh, it was such a difference compared to when you buy a bag of coffee beans out of the store. The fresh smell was incredible. As you might have guessed, I immediately brewed a big ol cup of coffee!
I ordered the George Howell Tarrazu, which according to the description is a classic cup of coffee, smooth and chocolatey. Yeah, nailed that description. It was delicious, and a classic blend. You know how sometimes you just want a good, traditional cup of coffee? This is it.
If you are a regular coffee drinker, I strongly encourage you to join the subscription box here. You can’t beat the prices for the quality of the selection. I mean, coffee beans roasted to order? Yes please and thank you!
